Hybrid futures: the blending of AI and ‘digital’ into life, work and society

13:00 - 17:00

Warm welcome to the 2021 Digitalidag event at the Stockholm School of  Economics!

This year, we shift focus to the increasingly intimate, entangled relationship we develop with AI, with platforms, and with other digital technologies, and how this changes organizations, new ventures, and our work and lives. Rather than shifting from “the old” to “the new”, from a known analog world to an unknown digital one, we increasingly blend into a hybrid life, being online and “IRL” at the same time, experiencing things that are physically and virtually immersive, that are rooted in tradition and radically new. The theme for this year’s conference is hybridity. 

Hybridity entails a fusion of entities. As an idea, it can help us see the world more holistically, as a blend of experiences, materials, cultures, ideas, or solutions, spanning across time and space, which in turn create something enriched, something new. 

Together we will leverage the idea of hybridity to explore technology, humanity, and the complex web of issues shaping our rapidly digitalizing world. We will explore tensions and contradictions, the familiar and the strange, as we craft a clearer picture of digital transformation beyond the easy wins: beyond the “green field” or the “blue ocean”, digital transformation is increasingly about balancing the old and the new: upgrading existing expertise and building new skills, protecting existing revenue streams and engaging in new ecosystems, being compassionate and analytical at the same time. 

Our exploration of hybridity together with thought-leaders, policy makers, business and NGO leaders and entrepreneurs, will cover:  

  • Platform competition and societal responsibility 
  • Human – AI collaboration and role of AI in organizational transformation  
  • Integrating technology, equity and sustainability in new ventures  
  • Esthetics, art, and imagination’s role in generative innovation  
  • Imaginaries of the future and psychological safety  

This will be an online event. We are convinced that it will, like last year, be engaging, stimulating and interactive. 

This digital conference is arranged by the House of Innovation together with the Wallenberg Foundations, the Future Work Forum, Scania, and MISUM. More information how to sign up and the platform will be available on SSE’s website in the coming weeks here >

Warm welcome to join us online!
